No Early Victory Party Planned for Strimling Campaign
The re-election campaign of State Senator Ethan King Strimling has no plans to hold an early victory party, as it did when Strimling was re-elected in 2004. That year, Strimling held a victory party on October 15th, two weeks before his November 2nd re-election.

The party, which was held at Anthony’s Italian Kitchen on Middle Street in the Old Port, featured an appearance by Matt Servitto, an actor who plays the part of Agent Harris on HBO’s popular show The Sopranos. Servitto is a high school friend of Strimling’s who flew in from New York for the event.

A campaign announcement said that the victory party was being held early because everyone would be so busy on Election Night. It also said the event was a ‘Honeymoon Party’ celebrating Strimling’s wedding, which was held in September, 2004 in Italy. Strimling Campaign Director Corey Hascall called the event a GOTV (Get Out the Vote) event and a party for campaign workers.

This year, Strimling took a vacation in South America in early October.
